High-budget films have budgets more than $11 million. Directors working a week on a high-budget film earned a minimum of $19,143 in 2018, while a week on a short or documentary paid $13,672. When the film takes more than the week, directors on high-budget productions earned $4,786 daily pay.

Do actors or directors get paid more?

Those actors who are paid more than directors are the ones who are box office draws. The highest earning film directors are also producers. As a producer who manages the film as a "business", a director in such a dual role will both get a director's fee as well as a percentage of the film revenues.
